Jebel Ali signs on two Seychelles hotels

Jebel Ali International Hotels is delighted to announce that it has signed two hotel management contracts in the Seychelles with Trinity Estates and Trinity Waterfront. The two properties, Round Island and The Waterfront will be managed by Jebel Ali International Hotels on behalf of the Enchanted brand, a new Seychelles based hospitality company.

Round Island, just a 15 minute boat ride from Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, in a National Marine Park will open in the third quarter of 2008 and offer ten individual deluxe private chalets, each complete with a plunge pool and small private beach, as well as a spa.

The Waterfront, which will open early 2010 on Mahé just five minutes outside Victoria, will comprise 40 deluxe rooms and suites and will have its own private beach, marina and spa.

‘We are delighted to have this opportunity to manage these two exclusive and prestigious properties in the Seychelles and it is a great honour for us to be working with the Shah family. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Enchanted in the future,’

said David Thomson, General Manager Corporate Affairs for Jebel Ali International Hotels.


Mr. Shah, the chairman and owner of Trinity & Enchanted added: ‘We selected Jebel Ali International Hotels because we felt that they understood what we want to achieve and were able to appreciate and empathise with our vision, not just for these two properties, but for the Enchanted brand. We look forward to a long and close association in the future.’
